There are a small number of jobs that are legally required to have time off from work (e.g. truck drivers) but generally most employees do not have legal protections for days off from work. The ADA and FMLA may require further time off for medical/disability reasons. Prohibitions on religious discrimination may similarly require time off for religious practices.
